Hi

I can get this to insert 'this is a test' and that works fine.

But how should I get it to insert the data that Im showing in the MessageBox in the foreach loop?

Thanks


SqlConnection sqlConn = new SqlConnection();
            sqlConn.ConnectionString = "Data Source=PC001;Initial Catalog=mytest;Integrated Security=True;";
            sqlConn.Open();

            string insertString = @"insert into websites (website) values ('This is a test')";
            SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(insertString, sqlConn);
            cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();

            foreach (string listBoxItem in listBox1.Items)
            {
                MessageBox.Show("saving " + listBoxItem.Trim().ToString());
            }

Would it be wise to do this DELETE part too?

Is it the correct syntax?

I got an error Incorrect syntax near *



SqlConnection sqlConn = new SqlConnection();
            sqlConn.ConnectionString = "Data Source=PC024;Initial Catalog=paulstest;Integrated Security=True;";
            sqlConn.Open();

            string deleteString = @"DELETE * FROM websites";
            SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(deleteString, sqlConn);
            cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();

            string insertString;
            foreach (string listBoxItem in listBox1.Items)
            {
                insertString = @"insert into websites (website) values (" + listBoxItem.Trim().ToString() + ")";
                cmd = new SqlCommand(insertString, sqlConn);
                cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
            }

Cheers
